GLOBE MISSION

  • GLOBE IS SCIENCE AND EDUCATION

  • GLOBE BRINGS TOGETHER STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND

  • SCIENTISTS TO:

    • ENHANCE ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS OF

    • INDIVIDUALS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

    • CONTRIBUTE TO SCIENTIFIC UNDERSTANDING OF

    • THE EARTH

    • SUPPORT IMPROVED STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IN

    • SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS


Slide3 l.jpg

OVERVIEW

  • GLOBE IS A HANDS-ON INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE AND EDUCATION PROGRAM

  • GLOBE STUDENTS IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD:

    • TAKE GLOBE ENVIRONMENTAL MEASUREMENTS USING SCIENTIFIC PROTOCOLS

    • REPORT OBSERVATIONS TO THE GLOBE DATA ARCHIVE VIA THE INTERNET

    • STUDY EARTH SCIENCE TOPICS USING GLOBE MAPS AND GRAPHS AND OTHER GLOBE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS

  • EVERY GLOBE SCHOOL HAS A GLOBE-TRAINED TEACHER


Slide4 l.jpg

GLOBE INITIATIVE

  • GLOBE INITIATIVE INTRODUCED ON EARTH DAY 1994

  • GLOBE PROGRAM INITIATED ON EARTH DAY 1995

  • OVER 95 COUNTRIES

  • OVER 10,000 SCHOOLS AND 15,000 TEACHERS INVOLVED WORLDWIDE

  • UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION DECEMBER 1994

    • ENDORSED GLOBE AND ENCOURAGED NATIONS TO PARTICIPATE

    • UN AGENCIES REQUESTED TO SUPPORT IMPLEMENTATION

GLOBE SCIENCE

  • GLOBEMEASUREMENTS HAVE BEEN SELECTED BY THE INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE COMMUNITY AND ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE RESULTS IF DONE PROPERLY

  • SCIENTISTS USEGLOBE DATA IN THEIR ON-GOINGRESEARCH

  • GLOBESCIENTISTS INTERACT WITH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED IN GLOBE TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK, ENCOURAGEMENT AND ADVICE

  • GLOBE ACTIVITIES STRENGTHEN THE LINKS BETWEEN LEADING RESEARCH SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS AT SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD

GLOBE ENVIRONMENTALMEASUREMENTS

  • ATMOSPHERE/CLIMATE STUDIES

  • AIR TEMPERATURE (MAXIMUM, MINIMUM, CURRENT)

  • PRECIPITATION (RAIN, SNOW, pH)

  • CLOUD COVER/TYPE

  • RELATIVE HUMIDITY

  • OZONE

  • AEROSOLS

  • BAROMETRIC PRESSURE

  • HYDROLOGY STUDIES

  • WATER TEMPERATURE

  • TRANSPARENCY

  • WATER CHEMISTRY

    • pH, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, ALKALINITY, NITRATE

  • SALINITY OR CONDUCTIVITY

  • SOILS STUDIES

  • SOIL TEMPERATURE

  • SOIL MOISTURE

GLOBE EDUCATION

  • GLOBEPROVIDES AN INQUIRY-BASED APPROACH TO STUDYING AND UNDERSTANDING THE ENVIRONMENT AS A SCIENCE

  • GLOBEADDRESSES THE EARTH AS ASYSTEM

  • GLOBEMATERIALS ARE RESOURCES TO ENHANCE EXISTING SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, AND SOCIAL SCIENCE STUDIES

    • GLOBEIS NOT A FREE-STANDING ENVIRONMENTAL CURRICULUM

    • GLOBE TEACHERS INTEGRATE GLOBE INTO CURRICULA

  • GLOBE PROVIDES EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS FOR USE K-12

    • GLOBE TEACHER'SGUIDE

    • GLOBE LEARNINGACTIVITIES

    • GLOBE VIDEOS

    • GLOBE WEB SITE

Slide27 l.jpg

GLOBE Program Evaluation

  • SRI COMPARISON OF GLOBE CLASSROOMS WITH NON-GLOBE CLASSROOMS SHOWS THAT GLOBE PRODUCES:

    • POSITIVE IMPACT ON STUDENT LEARNING AND PERFORMANCE

      • MORE TIME HANDS-ON

      • LESS TIME MEMORIZING

    • HEIGHTENED TEACHER EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENTS

    • IMPROVED STUDENT HIGHER ORDER THINKING SKILLS

      • INTERPRETING DATA

      • DRAWING INFERENCES

    • ENHANCED STUDENT APPRECIATION OF WHAT SCIENTISTS DO

      • STUDYING PROBLEMS WITHOUT A CLEAR SOLUTION

      • COLLABORATION WITH OTHER SCIENTISTS


Slide29 l.jpg

This contour map was created from GLOBE student data. Each colored square marks a GLOBE School reporting the maximum air temperature for the previous 24-hour period.

Such images are prepared for all GLOBE datasets and are available at the GLOBE Web site.

  • GLOBE

  • A WORLDWIDE STUDENT/SCIENTIST PARTNERSHIP

  • IN ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION

    • A GRASSROOTS EXTENSION TO WORLDWIDE EFFORTS TO UNDERSTAND THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT

      • SCIENTISTS ARE GAINING ACCESS TO DATA THAT WOULD OTHERWISE GO UNCOLLECTED

      • MANY OF THESE DATA COMPLEMENT SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING MISSIONS

    • YOUNG PEOPLE ARE CONTRIBUTING TO UNDERSTANDING OF EARTH AS A SYSTEM WHILE DOING SCIENCE

      • LEARNING SCIENCE BY DOING SCIENCE

      • GLOBE PROVIDES RESOURCES TO TEACHERS TO INCORPORATE INQUIRY INTO SCIENCE CURRICULUM

      • GLOBE IS SUPPORTING EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT


    Slide37 l.jpg

    • GLOBE

  • A WORLDWIDE STUDENT/SCIENTIST PARTNERSHIP

  • IN ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION (CONT)

    • INTERNET AND WORLD WIDE WEB ENABLES GLOBE PARTNERSHIP

      • GLOBE WEB SITE PROVIDES MEANS TO

        • SHARE DATA AND IDEAS

        • COMMUNICATE AND COLLABORATE

        • TO LEARN COOPERATIVELY

      • GOOD ACADEMIC USE OF COMPUTER AND WEB-BASED TECHNIQUES
